Arthur Chiron, Untitled, 2018
Translation of the text behind the postcard:
"How are we to envisage a simultaneous presence within the two spaces of the exhibition, The Tyranny of Distance? By which means can one experience, the same conditions, at the same moment, with the same point of view? Ubiquity always being pure science fiction, it would seem that any tangible solution is always exchanged for a resolutely disappointing experience. But a general agreement can still be found: a point of equilibrium, a place both neutral and perfectly symbolic, sufficiently close to point A, without losing sight of point B.
Using the geographical coordinates of the two exhibition spaces and with the help of precious geometrical calculations, we discover the itinerary of our destination, an orthodromic voyage across oceans and continents. Provided we don’t lose our way, we will meet up here, beyond what is called the “limit of the trees”, just a few kilometers from the Koskoak river estuary and the beaches of the Ungava bay in the north of Québec.
Have a good trip"
